I agree with parados on that - though I might wish the kitchen laminate had been a darker choice (re real colonials, but then they would have had thick hardwood) and then have the whole thing the same. But as it is, I would also probably now make it all the light laminate.
What's under the carpet? What is presently in the living room and hall?
Depending on the house - if it was really old - and the budget, I'd even consider taking the kitchen laminate out if I felt strongly enough about a darker color and had a swell bank account. (I don't.) Or maybe doing all the rest in what I wanted, and weaving at the interface as others have suggested.
On the other hand, if you like the light filled room look, find it fresher, I can see going that way and being quite happy I did.
